Hi everyone, welcome back to the kitchen and today we’re starting off summer the right way today We’re gonna make these delicious grilled Greek style marinated chicken breasts. I can’t wait to show you how these all come together We’re gonna make a marinade it’s a Greek style marinade and that just means that we have been influenced by the Flavor profile of Greek food or the food that comes from the island of Greece So these are gonna be very strong delicious Mediterranean flavors and I’m gonna be marinating several chicken breasts that Rick is gonna grill and We’re going to use this as a basis for a week’s worth of meals all a little bit different But all using this Greek style marinated chicken and it’s gonna be an awesome way to plan your menu throughout the summer and Everyone’s really gonna love it. So what we’re gonna start off with is a 1/2 of a sweet onion that I have chopped So that’s about a cup 1/2 a cup of lemon juice 1/2 a cup of white wine vinegar 1/2 a cup of olive oil This is a light olive oil because I have a bottle hanging around that I need to use up Otherwise use extra virgin or if you don’t have that just use whatever vegetable oil you have on hand Also 1/2 a cup of water because we just want everything to blend together nicely We’re gonna use 2 to 4 cloves of minced garlic about 1/4 of a cup of fresh dill quarter of a cup of fresh chopped chives I have about a tablespoon of agave nectar If you don’t have a ghave nectar you can use brown sugar maple syrup or honey a teaspoon each of salt and cracked black pepper a Tablespoon of Dijon mustard and a tablespoon of dried oregano if you have fresh Oregano growing in your garden go ahead and use it use about 2 tablespoons if you’re going the fresh route So this couldn’t be any easier. We’re gonna pop all of this in the ninja blender So there goes our lemon juice our chives our dill our garlic oregano salt and pepper agave nectar Dijon mustard I’m gonna put the rest of our liquids in goes our white wine vinegar or olive oil and our water and we’re gonna blend Okay, we’re done blending and I got my chicken already I have about three pounds of chicken breasts that are boneless skinless, and I just have them in a ziploc bag I have filleted them. So they are like butterflied in half lengthwise and I’m gonna give this marinade just a little bit of a taste. Oh That’s good, and I’m just gonna pour all of it on my chicken this is the perfect amount for that now remember once you use this you Won’t be able to use it for anything else. You’ll just have to discard it after you get your chicken marinated so what I’m gonna do is I’m just gonna Pop it in here It’s fully covered you can see We have good coverage on the chicken and I’m just gonna let this hang out in the fridge for the rest of the day and Rick is going to go ahead and grill this and we will be back and we’ll show you what these look like Our chickens been marinating for about four hours or so I don’t know that I would do this overnight because there’s a lot of acid in that marinade and You don’t want it to start cook the meat So just you know do it in the afternoon and then you’ll have it ready when you’re when you get Moo and grill is ready even if you only marinate this for an hour It’s gonna be delicious and we’re just gonna throw these on the grill and then when they’re ready to bring inside I’ll come back and I’ll show you what they look like there.

  5. Never saw somebody using dill for a grilling-marinade, will try that for sure. Really like your description, that you want to catch the flavor profile of Greek cuisine with that recipe. Greek food we know as very satisfying when you are really hungry.

  6. This is a great recipe! I’m excited to try it. Do you have any suggestions for keeping the chicken breast from drying out after you’ve grilled it?
